[Updated] The Bermuda Industrial Union said they are “in no way involved” with the planned march on Parliament tomorrow [Mar 1], however they are encouraging their members to participate in the demonstration.
The group behind the march is calling for 4 things: Term Limits to be reinstated, a three month extension of of the Work Permit Policy Review, a public apology from the Minister of Home Affairs Michael Fahy for his “deception and condescending attitude,” as well as requesting that OBA officials “cease and desist calling Bermudians xenophobic.”
A statement from the BIU said, “The public should be aware that the Bermuda Industrial Inion is in no way involved the ‘March on Parliament’ that is scheduled to leave from Union Square on Friday, March 1, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.
“However, the BIU is encouraging its membership to participate in the demonstration organized by “Concerned Bermudians” which is to begin at 12 noon tomorrow on the grounds of the House of Assembly during their lunch break on Friday, March 1, 2013.”
Update 3.46pm: To clarify, the march at 10.30am and the demonstration at 12 noon are two separate events organized by two separate entities. The BIU is encouraging their membership to join the demonstration at 12 noon.
